What the course covers

Part 1

Covers the science behind how and why children learn and their specific behaviours in the pool. The course is set out in an easy concise way, and provides many examples and creative ideas to add to your swim lessons.

The five modules include:

  • Learning Patterns - knowing how a child learns makes a huge impact on your lessons

  • S.E.N.S.O.R.I.A.L Methodology - how to tap in to your imagination and creative mindset to design purposeful sensorial lessons

  • E.P.I.C Kit bag design - how we fill a child's jar of joy 

  • P.O.W.E.R.ful communication strategies - how to build trusted relationships so the pace of learning is effective

  • The S.P.L.A.S.H Theory - understanding how and why the body is a moving tool of learning

Part 2

Gives you lots of ideas, themes, games and how to set out your swim environment for learning. The guidance is age-specific so we are split this part of the course into two separate groups based on age.

It’s time to review your lessons and enhance your swim programmes.

The course is so informative . Helen and co have so much knowledge, information, resources and experience to share . Feeling quite lucky to be part of this.
If you get the chance to take part or sign up for the next one I would highly recommend it .I feel excited about how I am going to plan/run  my lessons going forward. I have just been shopping for some new resources too and we haven't even finished all the modules yet!

I am really enjoying this and module 1 has opened my eyes on teaching the children. I like the triangle of success and as a new teacher and working in a leisure centre after observing many teachers there which all seem to follow traditional method. I will now be trying to change how I have been learnt to teach

The SWIM Zone Fundamentals 6 week workshop has opened my eyes to all the important aspects we must consider when teaching children how to swim.  From the science behind how we teach to how we engage the children. I found it very useful and interesting. The workshop was presented very well, keeping me engaged the whole time.  I recommend it!
